Nupur Hembrom, Project Fellow


jpgI belong to Jharkhand and visits to my village situated in a pristine location led to my interest in the environment and observation of the natural world. I then went on to complete my post-graduation in Environmental studies from University of Delhi, which gave me a deeper understanding of the interdisciplinary linkages within this subject. I did my Master’s dissertation in the field of bioremediation where I carried out Isolation and Characterization of bacteria which has ability to detoxify 4- Nitroaniline (aromatic amine).

In order to further pursue my interest in the interdisciplinary linkages within environmental studies, I volunteered with the Applied Environmental Research Foundation (AERF) where I carried out socio-economic survey in the hamlets of Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary in North Western Ghats. I then worked as a trainee in ONGC where I did a literature review on the environment management initiatives carried out at ONGC’s Effluent Treatment Plant in Lakwa, Assam.

I also have an interest in Law and the law making process. To learn about its implementation in this environment field, I pursued a post-graduate diploma in international environmental law from ISIL, New Delhi. I am interested in the field of ecology and evolution and want to work further in areas which require an interdisciplinary approach.
